Notorious Gangster Whitey Bulger Caught Pleasuring Himself in Prison, Got Solitary Confinement
Infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger got thrown into solitary confinement after being caught masturbating in prison, records showed.
Of all the depravities gangster Whitey Bulger has committed, it was playing with himself that got the convicted killer sent to solitary confinement, according to prison officials.
James "Whitey" Bulger was alone in his cell at 3 a.m. when a guard discovered him mastubating with the lights on, according to a new report from the Boston Globe.
The incident, which occurred last June at the U.S. Penitentiary Coleman II in Sumterville, Florida, landed Bulger in solitary confinement for 30 days, the paper said.
The infamous and feared mobster had violated a regulation forbidding sexual activity of any kind by inmates, officials said. But Bulger, now 86, claimed he was doing nothing of the kind.
Citing a prison disciplinary report, the paper reported Thursday that Bulger said he was putting powder on his genitals to combat a fungus brought on by hot temperatures.
"I've never had any charges like that in my whole life," said the man serving life in prison for participating in 11 murders. "My sex life is over," he told an officer, the paper reported.
He was convicted in 2013 of participating in the killings, and of running an enormous criminal synicated from the 1970s to the 1990s.
He was one of the country's most-wanted fugitives when he was arrested in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011.
He had been on the lam for more than 16 years when he was found living in a rent-controlled apartment just blocks from the Pacific Ocean.
Authorities found more than $800,000 in cash hidden in the walls of his apartment, along with an arsenal of weapons and ammunition.
